If left unchecked, COIs breed domino-effect misconduct and extreme risk areas for companies. From fraud and corruption to insider trading and more, confidence and trust in a business can be shattered, and sometimes, unrepairable. Customer, partner, investor and employee views of the company will be tarnished and long-term financial stability may be threatened.
